To build a valid defense, the enterprises should know what the risk is to the organization. The data can be gained from a range of sources, comprising stakeholders in the business, industry, or by other interested bodies, like the National Cyber Security Centre, who enable sector-specific threat information. Effective presentation and interpretation of the data provide the intelligence for companies to make a planned decision, which then informs what kind of defense the organization needs and where the investment in endpoint security technology should be applied.

Hacking

Whether it is for personal or for commercial interest, wanting to hack another's account is being boosted by social media. Previously the user could visit a hacking site to purchase a hacking tool. Now, the users can purchase the Hacking as a Service from malware engineers and people that specialize in breaking into other profiles or hacking. Hacking services are gaining importance and much more professional with money-back guarantees. While, of course, hacking remains illegal, these services continue to be a direction of travel for people with that motivation.
